Scarning is lucky to have two hard courts, both situated on the Playing Field on Shipdham Lane.
These can be hired by the hour for £5 by contacting Pam Cole on 07375 077807 or by collecting a key from 1 Hall Cottages, Dereham Road, (opposite the church.)

If you need to wait for a court to become available. you can always have a game of table tennis on the adjacent table!

There are also friendly Free Community Tennis Sessions twice a week, which are held on Thursday evenings between 18.00-20.00 and Sunday mornings between 10.00-12.00.  If you are new to the area or want to get back into tennis, learn from scratch or aspire to be better, or maybe you are a decent player already, all will be very welcome. Some participants worry at first that they might not be good enough but these anxieties are quickly dissipated. All you need is a racquet and some balls. We have a mix of age groups, though children under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult.
There is also a WhatsApp network for players to keep in touch and arrange friendly games between the Free Community Sessions. For more information 07889 077396 – ScarningTennis@Gmail.Com
